Cracking the Painted Easter Egg of Our Wrong Conceptions
After meeting the Buddhist teachings, Ven. Chodron was ordained over 25 years ago. Since then she has studied and taught in spiritual programs and monasteries around the world. As Buddhism comes to the West, she has taken an active role in inter-religious dialogue, as well as participating in conferences relating similarities and differences among science and Buddhist principles. Ven. Chodron helped to organize the first conference for woman monastics, and has participated in several western Buddhist teacher conferences. She is the author of several well known books including "Open Heart, Clear Mind","Working with Anger" and "Buddhism for Beginners."
